The summer period has been a successful time for CCRI researchers with five papers having been published or accepted for publication.
The EU Horizon2020 project ‘SURE-Farm’ (Towards SUstainable and REsilient EU FARMing systems) has published a new Business Brief that aims to improve risk management for EU agriculture.
This week the European Parliament’s Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development published a report investigating the EU farming employment sector. The CCRI was part of the consortium, which was led by OIR.
The SURE-Farm team have issued a new policy brief on farm demographics and impacts on farm structure, which has been in part based upon work conducted by a CCRI case study focussed on arable farming in the East of England.
Over the summer period, two papers have been published that have had involvement from a number of CCRI researchers. Dan Keech is co-author on a paper that will be available next year, whilst Damian Maye, Julie Urquhart and Mauro Vigani contributed to a paper associated with the SURE-Farm project.
Another book publication success for researchers in CCRI. Mauro Vigani, Janet Dwyer and John Powell have contributed to a new book analysing agricultural labour markets and policies in EU and North America.
Last year, CCRI researchers had a paper published in a special issue of the journal ‘Space and Polity’. Due to the interest in this special edition, which profiled “the varied contributions of geographical inquiry to scholarly debates on the causes, meaning and implications of the UKs decision to Brexit from the EU”, the journal will now be published as a book.
Mauro Vigani travels to Brussels for the 172nd European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAAE) Seminar where he will present a co-authored paper concerning the impact of CAP Pillar II payments within EU28 countries.
More publication success for the CCRI with the acceptance of an article into a journal and a new book going into production.
Damian Maye and Mauro Vigani will travel to Krakow in Poland next week as the SUFISA project reaches its conclusion with the final policy conference.
